I have used 2 of the deeper shades and 2-3 coats looks great. The wide, flat brush makes it super easy to apply. I get about 4 days out of this polish until it starts to wear off from the free end of my nail. I find that it doesn't chip very easily. I have 2 babies and work with my hands and wash them frequently. I usually dont get much more than a day or 2 out of a manicure (salon or at home). This is the best non-gel polish that I have used.
ALso, it dries pretty quickly and you really don't need a top coat. It dries quickly, smooth, shiny, and without bubbles. Can't ask for much more from this busy mama.
I love this french manicure set. I have long natural nails that i love switching up designs and I am gradually getting steadier hands in order to do all the things I want to on them. Overall the instructions were very well put together, but i changed a few things. Plus I don't go to salons so I have no idea how a french manicure is done, but I know how they look and I wanted that look.\n\nI put a thin coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Hardener on my nails (Dries really fast, which is great) because I was worried the white would turn my nail tip yellow just in case the UV protection didn't hold up all the way through. I let it dry really well before I applied the white and continued with the rest of the directions. One complaint; I am not liking the opaque color over the white. I want more of a whiter tip so I will put the opaque on under the white next time and see how that looks or just do one really thin coat over top instead of the two.
